Blue Lagoon; Beachfront Paradise on Tamarindo Beach

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Welcome to Blue Lagoon - our secluded, PRIVATE, beach oasis located directly on one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of beach.  Enjoy this 1 bed/bath, fully equipped home set on a perfectly landscaped slice of paradise that’s only a 7 minute beach walk from town that feels so private, yet is close to everything.  Direct access to the beach provides magical sunset vistas nearly every evening, and morning strolls or beach runs on inviting sand…you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven!

Sleeping arrangements

Bedroom 1: 1 queen bed

Common spaces: 1 queen bed sofa sleeper

The space

Blue Lagoon is located right on the beach, but property provides PRIVACY right in the middle of everything. Guests have their own 1 bed/bath apartment with large balcony, full kitchen, living room and huge shower.  Queen bed in the single bedroom, with Sofa sleeper (queen size) for the living room to accommodate up to 2 more guests. Share this large property and beautiful pool with owners who reside in a separate, main house. Beautiful landscaping with mature trees provide continuous respite from the heat and are routinely teaming with monkeys and tropical birds.

Guest access

Blue Lagoon is located 42 miles door to door from Liberia Costa Rica International Airport.  The Tamarindo Shuttle at $20 per person is recommended if not renting a vehicle (check website for current pricing). Guest access to property is through a large, secure, automatic gate from the main road (known as "road to Langosta")…and with our private, direct beach access, your arrival may very well be the last time you use the gate before heading home!  Beach gate places you directly on the sand to a leisurely 7 minute stroll to town. Widely acknowledged as the best stretch of beach in all of Tamarindo.

Interaction with guests

Owners live full time on the property and are happy to share a drink, a story…usually both! to provide recommendations on local interests.  Friendship and mutual enjoyment of this oasis is our goal…but peace and solitude are also treasured!

The neighborhood

Mature landscaping provides excellent seclusion and screening from adjacent properties, increasing that feeling of being in your own private oasis.  Beach has a very gentle slope to water, just perfect for walking, running, or kids splish-splashing in the sun.  Gentle grade also provides for a substantial tidal change…and the best break on the beach!  Surfboards and Stand up paddle boards available for rent locally,so get out there and shred that surf!

Getting around

Taxis are available to anywhere, however, really not necessary. For quick trips to Playa Avellana or Playa Conchal, a taxi will normally cost around $25 each way

Other things to note

We are happy to meet special requests. Such as picking up some simple groceries so they are ready upon arrival, recommending restaurants, surf instructors, horseback if you are not sure, just ask.

Tiziana is also an authentic Pilates Teacher/Trainer (20 years of experience), Yoga Instructor and therapy massage specialist, if you're broken, she can fix you. She offers private sessions upon requests. Please message for scheduling and pricing.

Spectacular ... would give 6 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Tiziana were amazing hosts. Not only did they share their favorite restaurant recommendations but they also made arrangements for a surf lessons. They are a lovely couple and we enjoyed getting to know them and spending time with them. Their home is lovely and the location is perfect. We had our own vehicle but you certainly don’t have to as the town and all amenities are within a short beach walk. The apartment had everything you would need to be more than comfortable. They also had extras like beach chairs, a beach umbrella, body boards, beach towels, etc. The beach is mere steps away. The sand was soft and the surf had just enough swells to make it fun and not intimidating. Kona, their dog, is the sweetest thing. This trip ranks up as one of our favorites!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (mom, dad, kids ages 11 & 7) stayed here the last 2 nights of our 10 day trip to Costa Rica. The clean, lovingly maintained accommodations met our needs perfectly. Tiziana and Jim (and dog Kona) were so warm and welcoming that we felt immediately at home on their beautiful property. My husband and I really liked the fact that we did not have to drive anywhere - we simply walked about 10 minutes along the beach to the center of town. Viewing the night sky with our girls one night after dinner as we walked back was spectacular. The ocean in front of the property is perfect for wading, beginning surfing and boogie boarding. Even though this place is within walking distance to town, it feels private, secure and peaceful. The grounds are lush and expertly maintained by Luis. We were happy to be able to see several monkeys, lizards and CR's version of squirrels as we enjoyed the covered outdoor seating area. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you, Tiziana and Jim, for your gracious hospitality!

Best Location in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We spent five wonderful weeks at four vrbo's throughout this beautiful country of Costa Rica. Tamarindo Beach surpasses them all especially at the Blue Lagoon at the quieter south end of Tamarindo Beach. Jim and Tiziana are such gracious hosts and are always available for travel advice or help when needed. All the finest restaurants and shopping are within a short beachwalk from this fabulous location.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Blue Lagoon! The location was perfect for us. We enjoy the fun in the town but liked being far enough away from town that it was easy to be a part of the activity and a short walk down the beach took us away from it. The beach was amazing and the surf was perfect for many levels!

Jim and Tiziana were so kind and helpful. They are there to offer suggestions, tips and often just good conversation over a cold Imperial.

If you are looking for Monkeys, surf and amazing food than this is the place for you!

We will be back!

Fabulous- Blue Lagoon

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous!! Words will never do this property or the hosts justice without visiting yourself. From start to finish, everything was well beyond 5 stars - from the arrival of the unknowns to a bitter sweet departure of new friends and vacation destination! The Tamarindo shuttle from Libera will drop off/pick up from the gates of the Blue Lagoon. The property is absolutely gorgeous with luscious gardens and wildlife (even during the dry season). As avid world travelers we’ve stayed at many VRBO’s; however, this experience was exceptional to say the least. The accommodations were quaint/private and the hosts went above and beyond what we ever expected; Jim, Tiziana (and Kona too:-), were phenomenal! The beach is within a few very short steps of the property and everything you need or want is within a short walking distance (i.e. lunch, dinner, shopping, supplies, surf shops etc.) We always felt safe while exploring Tamarindo, both day and late night. The apartment was much better than described and extremely clean! We occasionally cooked at the apartment and had all cooking utensils etc. When we didn’t cook in, we ate at host recommended establishments nearby and not one disappointed us. There is a great covered patio off of the apartment to chill and relax at anytime of day with occasional howler monkey visits; however, they never disturbed us. Surfing was excellent both morning and night. Check this place out! You will NOT regret it!! Pura Vida!!!!
